These are incredible amounts of money. Amounts that are in the stratosphere, beyond comprehension. We're talking about a silkscreen photo of actor Marlon Brando sitting on a motorcycle for the movie The Wild One . This photo is going up for auction in November at Christie's , and is expected to fetch $20 MILLION. $20,000,000??? For a photo that has been reproduced a million times....
Fine, the photo was made by Andy Warhol, and the photo is of Marlon Brando, and yes, there's a motorcycle involved. But still... that is a lot of money for a photo that you can download from the internet and print out for free.
